Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said when asked if he thinks President Obama has a mandate. "I don't because then they would have put Nancy Pelosi in charge of the House of Representatives.

BILL KRISTOL: Let me begin with General Allen, who I think has been smeared, similar smeared by an FBI investigation that got out of control.

"I don’t think we lost it on those budget issues, I think people -- especially on Medicare, we clearly didn’t lose it on those issues. I think what people want us to do is to tackle these issues and this country's problems," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis) said in a post-election interview with WISC-TV. Ryan says people "don't want only Republican id

ALLEN WEST: And what the supervisor of elections of St. Lucie County said, Gertrude Walker, was that they went back and did a recount of the early votes that they had already counted, the first three or four days.

Nancy Giles, social commentator for CBS, asserted pro-life white people are only concerned abortion to "build up the race" on MSNBC's "Melissa Harris-Perry" this weekend.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the DNC, tells the "Morning Joe" panel that she'd be "shocked" if Nancy Pelosi stepped down as House minority leader. "Nancy Pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big, major decisions, the big issues," she said.

BILL KRISTOL: The Bush tax rates expire on Dec. 31. Rates are going up for everyone, if nothing happens.

Chris Matthews and Eugene Robinson discuss the Petraeus scandal.
Maddow asks questions about the Petraeus scandal.
